Kitchen Cabinet Makeover 101: Make Your Cabinets Look New Again

If your kitchen cabinet is starting to look a bit dated, it could be time for a makeover. Here are our tips for making old cabinets look new again. 

From everyday wear-and-tear to kitchen mishaps, your kitchen cabinets go through a lot. Keep reading to find out how you can care for them to get them back into tip-top shape. 

Get Scrubbing

It may seem obvious, but if you want your cabinets to look new again, the first step is to clean them. Grime and grime can build up on your cabinets throughout the years, no matter how regularly you wipe them down. Here are our tips for getting even the toughest dirt off of your cabinets: 

  • If your cabinets are sealed, using a steam mop could be an effective way to remove years of caked-on grime. Avoid using steam on unsealed cabinets as it can warp and damage the wood. 
  • For an all-natural solution to stuck-on grime, you can mix one-part vinegar with one-part water. Spray the mixture on your cabinets and let it sit for a few minutes before wiping it away. 
  • Consider removing the handles or knobs on your cabinets and soaking them to make it easier to scrub them clean.

After a thorough cleaning, you may be surprised just how much better and newer your cabinets look. 

Replace the Doors and Hardware

If your kitchen cabinet doors are beyond repair, you might consider replacing them. Doing this is a great way to get the look of new cabinets without the cost. Additionally, consider updating your cabinet’s hardware. While the knobs you have now may have been all the rage 20 years ago, replacing them with something more modern and stylish could make all the difference when bringing your cabinets into the 21st century. 

Hire Professionals

A great way to update your cabinets without replacing the doors is to paint them. However, this isn’t a project you are going to want to do yourself. The process of painting your cabinets can be tedious, time-consuming, and ultimately very expensive when you factor in all of the supplies you will have to buy only to use once. Painting cabinets correctly is a long process, and there is a lot of room for error, especially if you have never done it before. 

By hiring professional cabinet painters, you will not only save precious time but money as well. Instead of buying supplies and running the risk of having to strip your cabinets and start again, professional painters will bring their supplies and get the job done right the first time.
